Innovative applications

While Krytox™ high-performance lubricants have their origins in the aerospace industry, innovative applications have been developed across a broad range of industries— from aviation and automotive to chemical processing and electronics.

Evolving transportation technology demands more reliable and higher-performing lubricants that enable greater durability.

The ease of travel—both on the road and in the air—has made the world into a more mobile place.

As the global middle class continues to expand, so does the importance of the systems that enable mobility. An increase in both air travel and cars on the road has led to a need for more reliable and higher-performing lubricants that can enable greater durability of these transportation systems, without sacrificing the safety of passengers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more prevalent and integrated into global consumers’ daily lives.

From a car that has Bluetooth connection, to a smart home device that allows for remote control of the thermostat, to smart watches that keep data of previous fitness records, IoT devices have become integrated into daily routines to enhance quality of life for billions of people worldwide. And with the continued growth of IoT devices for personal and business consumption, there is a greater need to create semiconductors in a safer and more compact way.

A factoid that shows how mobility and connectivity have become integral to today’s world.

With their endurance at high temperatures and their chemical inertia, Krytox™ high-performance lubricants are suited to meet diverse needs and can enhance quality of life across developing and developed markets alike.

Stability and effectiveness, from aerospace shuttles to chemical-processing facilities.

In the industries that Krytox™ lubricants serve, the lubricants have qualities that are valued across the board. Their stability and effectiveness in enduring extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals, steam, and moisture enable more reliable and safer applications. From aerospace shuttles in orbit to chemical-processing facilities, Krytox™ high-performance lubricants can meet these industries’ needs.

A factoid that shows that Krytox™ high-performance lubricants can withstand up to 400 degrees Celsius and hence extend performance and reduce downtime for customers.

Durability and longevity are also key qualities that enable us to help customers innovate, without their having to worry about relubrication for a longer period of time. Krytox™ base oil is composed of fluorine, carbon, and oxygen (and known as PFPE, or perfluoropolyether), and formulated in many variants by adding thickeners, solvents, and additives that effectively protect moving parts from corrosion, wear, and extreme loads. Therefore, our products offer a much longer usable life compared to typical hydrocarbon-based oils and greases. This ultimately helps customers increase their productivity and decrease their costs by lessening the amount of downtime incurred during relubrication.

Collaborating with customers to launch their next innovations.

Our high-quality products, which provide reliability, safety, and efficiency, make us the lubricant of choice; however, our ultimate differentiator as an industry leader comes from our partnership with customers. At Chemours, our focus goes beyond the products. We offer the technical support needed to understand unique customer challenges by industry, and we collaborate with customers to offer strategic solutions for the next innovation that will further enhance quality of life for people worldwide.
